When did you first realize you were an entrepreneur?
In third grade, I saw an opportunity and grew it into my first entrepreneurial experience. It was 1985 and micro machines—tiny toy cars—were a big hit with kids my age. I amassed quite a collection and decided that I could use my growing inventory to start a rental company. I “hired” a friend as my vice president of marketing and we rented my micro machines to classmates for a penny per night.
